Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are in the middle of training camp, and while it feels like it just started, the first cuts were made at Chicago Blackhawks training camp Monday.

The Chicago Blackhawks made their first training camps cuts as the franchise sent some of their youngsters to their offseason teams in junior hockey.

The best part of cuts means that the Chicago Blackhawks season is getting closer with it only being 16 days away from opening night when the St. Louis Blues visit the United Center.

Patrick Kane being back in camp is also good news, even though most fans wish they got to see a little more from him at the World Cup of hockey, but I’m sure all Blackhawks fans being selfish are glad he only played 3 games at the World Cup and is now back home.

The Chicago Blackhawks now are one day away from their first preseason game which also brings some excitement with lots of young players trying to make their mark and get a full-time spot on the roster this year in Chicago.

Cuts are going to continue to be made on the roster, the question is who will be standing when the final cuts are made, and which players we expected to be on the roster will be opening their season in Rockford.  It’s getting closer everyday!
